In Los Angeles County of Museum of Art (LACMA) starting May 29th you can see over 700 creative works from Tim Burton.
This show first debuted at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, where it brought in an estimated 810,500 visitors, making it the third most popular show in the museum’s history – only behind Matisse in 1992 and Picasso in 1980! It then traveled to Melbourne, Australia and Toronto, Canada before coming to Los Angeles.
This major retrospective will surprise and delight you as you walk down memory lane. Step into one room and you’ll see the headpiece that Michael Keaton wore in the director’s 1989 Batman film and, at the same time, you’ll stand back in awe as you gaze upon Johnny Depp’s Edward Scissorhands costume.
Around every corner is a piece of Hollywood history but, more than that, you’ll get to know how Tim Burton, the artist, ultimately became who he is today. The exhibition is divided up into three sections which all center around Burbank, the city where he grew up. There’s “Surviving Burbank,” or his early years, “Beautifying Burbank,” where Burton comes into his own, studying at CalArts and working at Walt Disney Studios, and finally “Beyond Burbank,” the time in his life when he segues into feature films.
